March 16th, 2022 by

The 2022 Kia Forte is part of the most recent lineup for Kia’s motor vehicles. As part of its more modern vehicles, Kia has changed the exterior of the vehicle to feature new shapes, lighting elements, and wheel designs. Kia has also given their new 2022 Kia Forte updated technology for their high-level trims. Finally, Kia added more safety features to the 2022 Forte, helping you stay safe on the roads.

2022 Kia Forte Interior and Exterior Features

The new 2022 Kia Forte comes in four trims: the FE, the LXS, the GT-Line, and the GT. These are the different versions of the same car. High-level trims come with the same features as low-level trims and add more features to your driving experience. These features can be both interior and exterior features of the vehicle. The FE trim is the “basic” model for the vehicle. One step above the FE is the LXS and then the GT-Line, which is the highest trim Kia offers for the 2022 Forte. The 2022 Forte GT comes in an automatic or manual version.

Exterior Features

Below are the exterior features of the 2022 Kia Forte:

FE Trim

Before you even step into your new 2022 Kia Forte, there are some features you can experience. The FE trim comes with perimeter approach lighting, which is a system that activates the headlights and interior lights when you unlock your vehicle with your key fob. The FE trim also brings you solar control glass to reduce UV radiation, reduce temperature changes inside the vehicle, and prevent sun damage to the interior. Other features of the FE trim include auto control headlights, a locking fuel-filler door, and 15-inch steel wheel switch full covers, which are exclusive to this basic trim level.

The FE trim exterior comes in three colors: clear white, aurora black, and gravity gray.

LXS Trim

As the next trim level available in the 2022 Kia Forte, the LXS trim adds some exterior features for your driving experience besides having the non-exclusive features offered by the FE trim. First, you have the option to add mirror-mounted LED turn signal indicators. These can help you alert other drivers to the direction you’re driving, lane changes, and other maneuvers. Next, the LXS trim comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, which are exclusive to this trim. They add a stylish element to the wheels of your new vehicle.

The LXS trim exterior comes in seven colors:  currant red, deep-sea blue, snow white pearl, fire orange, aurora black, steel gray, and gravity gray.

GT-Line Trim

One of the first things you may notice on the GT-Line trim is the addition of a sport grille, black sport bumper, and sport side sills on the front of the vehicle. Its glossy black finish and red highlights hint at the luxury and performance the high-level trim gives you. The exterior of this trim level also holds a spoiler. While the LXS trim has an option to mount LED turn signal to the mirrors, this trim comes with them included. The GT-Line trim heats its mirrors to keep them clear in different driving conditions.

The GT-Line trim also comes with LED front fog lights, 17-inch alloy wheels exclusive to the trim, and an option to add a sunroof to the vehicle. This high-level trim comes in six colors: snow white pearl, fire orange, aurora black, steel gray, gravity gray, and sporty blue.

GT Trim

The highest level of trim for the 2022 Kia Forte, the GT trim comes with the non-exclusive features of the lower level trim and adds several features of its own. These features include LED headlights, high beam assist which activates the high beams in the darkest locations, dual chrome exhaust tips, a space-save spare tire, and 18-inch two-tone alloy wheels. The GT trim comes in six colors: currant red, snow white pearl, aurora black, steel gray, gravity gray, and sporty blue.

Interior Features

Below are the interior features of the 2022 Kia Forte:

FE Trim

The interior of the FE trim includes an 8-inch navigation screen in the front console, a 4-speaker audio system, and wireless entertainment features exclusive to the first two trim levels. The vehicle also includes Bluetooth connectivity, a rear-camera display, and a USB auxiliary port. Finally, Kia equips its FE trim with steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, a tilted and telescopic steering column, cruise control with steering wheel controls, and a trip computer to track your trip’s miles, gas, and a six-way powered adjustable driver’s seat. The interior of the FE trim comes in black woven cloth.

LXS Trim

The LXS trim’s interior comes with the features of the FE trim and adds two features: 60/40 folding rear seats and soft-touch door trim. The folding seats allow you to use the rear of your vehicle for extra storage space on long trips. The soft-touch door trim allows you to begin feeling the luxury Kia can offer you in its vehicles.

GT-Line Trim

The GT-Line trim replaces some features of low-level trims with upgraded versions. The most obvious of which is the 10.25-inch touchscreen control display with voice activation, and increasing the speakers in the vehicle from four to six. Other features include extra charging ports for your devices, a smart key with push-button ignition, and dual-zone automatic temperature control. Finally, the GT-Line trim adds SynTex and cloth seating materials, changing the colors inside from just black woven cloth to stitched cloth in either gray or black with the other color used for the stitching.

GT Trim

The interior of the GT rim adds several interior lighting features, including an illuminated glove box, ambient lighting, and illuminated visor vanity mirrors. It also adds features such as adjustable rear headrests, the option for heated front seats, and rear air conditioning and heating vents. The colors of the interior for the GT trim include red or black woven cloth and SynTex materials with red stitching.
